Best Things to Do In Brooklyn

Discover Brooklyn

Interior of Devocion

69 Grand St 13 min. walk

Come to Devoción for the third-wave Colombian coffee and stay for the dreamy interior with exposed brick walls and comfy leather sofas. Dry-milled in Bogota and shipped to Brooklyn ten days later, newly-roasted, ultra-fresh coffee is guaranteed.

Interior of Donna in Brooklyn

27 Broadway 9 min. by car

Head off the beaten path to Donna, a hip cocktail bar underneath the Williamsburg Bridge. Unlike its industrial surroundings, its interior design by Home Studios makes it the perfect spot for a rum-driven cocktail, delicious tacos, and live music throughout the week.

Hot pastrami at Frankel's

631 Manhattan Ave 8 min. walk

Visiting Brooklyn without eating in a Jewish deli is like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower. Stop by Frankel’s in Greenpoint for New York classics like bagels with smoked fish, pastrami sandwiches, and brisket.

Interior of Glasserie

95 Commercial St 10 min. by car

Like its name suggests, Glasserie is located in an old glass factory in Greenpoint. Go for the rustic vibe and stay for the acclaimed menu of Mediterranean bites, from flatbread and tahini to tuna crudo and carved lamb.

Interior of GLO Boutique Spa

74 North 8th Street 5 min. walk

This Brooklyn day spa offers everything you need to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. From facials to body services and waxing, as well as a menu of special treatments (think: seaweed body wraps) GLO Boutique Spa is the perfect way to treat yourself.

Interior of Homecoming

107 Franklin St 11 min. walk

Searching for New York style? Look no further than Homecoming, a stylish boutique and cafe stocked with the coolest selection of home goods in Brooklyn. Don’t miss the jewelry and home decor crafted by popular artists and designers.

Interior of Hotel Delmano

82 Berry St 5 min. walk

Hotel Delmano isn’t a hotel at all, but a Williamsburg cocktail bar in 19th-century digs. Go for the original cocktail menu and 100-bottle wine list, and stay for an exceptional raw bar specializing in a seasonal oyster selection.

Interior of Kinfolk

90 Wythe Ave 2 min. walk

As seems to be the mainstay with boutique shops in New York, Kinfolk sources the highest quality designers to develop lasting products and unique experiences, but draws in street traffic with coffee, cocktails, and rotating DJs.

Cocktails at Maison Premiere

298 Bedford Ave 15 min. walk

Step off Bedford Avenue and into the Big Easy at Maison Premiere, a cocktail bar with an outdoor garden. Be sure to make a reservation: these New Orleans-style cocktails, oysters, and small plates are in high demand.
